How do you have a PS3 output sound through a receiver?

I have a Yamaha VX-367 or something with my PS3 and PC plugged into it. It will not output sound. It goes like this;
PS3--->Receiver>Monitor
PC----->Receiver>Monitor
I get video just fine, but the Receiver does not receive any single apparently. I am plugging my Receiver into my monitor via HDMI-DVI cable. If you need any extra info or something, ask and I will put it here.
Thanks,
Caleb.

***Edit*** If it helps I have an HP S2331 monitor.

  1. I believe the HDMI-DVI cables can only transmit video and not sounds. You may have to run the sound separately.
  2. Yeah, But, I ran the HDMI to my receiver and I thought it would just splice the sound into my speakers. Its fine now, just ran separate lines.

    The PS3 has settings for audio. You may have had to switch from PCM to digital.
